RECTOR’S WELCOME ADDRESS

Pastor Ben Ewuzie - RectorWelcome to RILA, an Institution with a difference. For nearly two decades, RILA has not only excelled in the business of equipping positive change agents but has gone through very notable transformation. Today, it is to the glory of God that the Academy, which started as an offshoot and ran as an appendage of the RCBC for years stands tall in many respects. It is a thing of great joy when one considers the array of high profile professionals and leaders who have passed through the Academy and are daily influencing change in their respective areas of human endeavour. Thank God that the vision did not die but lives after several challenges. To the glory of God, we mark yet another landmark in the annals of our great Academy as we release another crop of great, distinguished and anointed men and women who have gone through the mills of transformation; prepared and fired up to go make impact and transform the world around them.

This year, RILA will be 20 years. 20 years of continuously transforming, equipping and deploying excellent men and women into the society. We really thank God for all He has done for us, as well as enabled us to do, we trust him to enable us soar higher. In view of our new status and our expansion programmes, our corporate headquarters can no longer be constrained within a parish. Therefore, one of our major targets would be to relocate to our own property preferably within the Ikoyi/Lekki axis in Lagos State, while we push for the completion of The Excel Centre, which will serve as our headquarters annex. Also, of great importance is the pursuit of affiliation with credible universities to add more value to what we offer our students. The issue of staff development will be one of our major pursuits. Equally, we shall pursue with zeal, the enlargement of our student population, the strengthening of our technological power and the pursuit of excellence.

Ultimately, our goal is to make heaven and to reproduce millions of faithful, heaven bound leaders who will in turn reproduce millions of their kind. We would like to see lives transformed, righteousness enthroned, nations exalted to the glory of God and a harvest of people ready for the coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
